Aico RadioLINK smoke alarms used in electrical fire safety

  • 13 Apr 2015

Aico alarms used in conjunction with Thermarestor System

Thermarestor fits to consumer units and distribution boards to monitor the temperature of electrical connection points.

If excessive heat is detected, Thermarestor can

  • isolate the supply
  • remove the potential source of ignition  
  • provide very early warning of the problem via Aico alarms, when linked to an Aico Switched Input Module

Unlike existing protective devices such as fuses, miniature circuit breakers and residual current devices, Thermarestor is able to sense the abnormal heat associated with those wiring faults which can ultimately lead to fire. This innovative system can be used in conjunction with Aico alarms to enable early detection and warning of potential fault conditions before they become a serious problem.

Why Aico RadioLINK smoke alarms have been selected

Aico RadioLINK smoke alarms have been selected for use with Thermarestor due to their quality, reliability and their use of Radio Frequency (RF) signals for interconnection. This allows Thermarestor to connect with the smoke alarm system wirelessly, removing the costly and time consuming requirement for hard-wiring between the two.
